former president clinton. will the president go after mitt romney tonight? do you think? >> well, it's hard to imagine that somebody, either jim lehrer or the president himself, won't bring up the 47% video because it has been devastating to romney. obama has used it in ads and it plays into the perception of romney as a very rich guy who is completely out of touch with ordinary voters. however, i can't imagine that romney hasn't are practiced responses to that. he's already had an ad where he sits down, faces the camera, he tries to assure voters that he wants to help 100% of americans, everybody. but the danger for romney is seeming fake or false when he tries to connect. he has, no doubt, practiced a lot, rehearsed a lot. he has a lot of answers already planned but can he seem genuine when he's given that answer -- those answers as something to watch out for? >> now, erin, the 47%, according to all polling, has really crushed romney. the latest poll shows 45% of americans said it gave them a more negative view of romney. now the polls show 55% had a negative reaction. so he has to d

are basically three possible outcomes, the way i see it tonight. someone that romney really does get some kind of a lift out of this it's a command performance, maybe some kind of slipup by obama. you think of john kerry in the first debate in 2004. maybe romney is able to revive his campaign tonight. the second possibility is, you know, something goes wrong for romney, he actually loses this debate. obviously that would be terrible for him now the third possibility, to be honest, probably the most likely one is nothing happens it is pace basically a draw, maybe 90 minutes of dull and boring television if that happens, the status quo in this vase affirmed. the status quo in this race has been a steady, stub burn three or four-point lead for barack obama and at that point, romney would be running out of big-moment opportunities to turn this thing around. that's what i'm looking for. here with us now in denver, we have howard fineman, the "huffington post" media group. said he is the buffalo bob of our show. >> now i'm don meredith because don meredith always used to say on monday nigh

more about the comments tonight from romney as he tries to draw attention away from his own 47% remark. there is a quick look at tonight's format. there are no opening statements. the president will answer the opening questions. the debate will be divided into six 15-minute segments. the president and romney will each get two minutes to answer an initial question in each topic area but then timing will be left to the moderator's discretion. since obama won a coin toss he won the choice and romney got the choice of if he wants the first or second closing statement. he will be the last person you hear from at tonight's debate. it's going to be a good one. it is fitting that the debate is in colorado. both candidates have spent a lot of time in this state. recent poling shows president with a slight edge over romney but it is fluid. the last time we were here we had the president up five points. and a one-point lead according to the "new york times" poll. joining me now colorado's democratic governor john hickenlooper. thanks for wonderful weather here. the weather is unbelievable

to run it in the swing states, but i think it'd be a mistake for mitt romney to do that tonight. he -- the best line he's had all campaign was barack obama promised you that he'd stop the seas from rising and heal the earth, i want to help you and your family. what he needs to add tonight, and here's how, and get into -- and i know they think they've done specifics, but the american people have not heard 'em. if he goes in tonight and does another bunch of bashing obama on what's wrong with the obama economy, people who believe that have already figured that out. they're looking to him for, okay, great, how are you going to help me and my family, and tell me. don't say -- and he also talked in the sort of the american people, let me tell the american people what i want to do. tell them what you're going to do for each one of them, i mean, for their family, for you and your family. the way he expressed it at the debate. if he loses that tonight, if he misses that by trying to make people like him or trying to bash obama even further into the ground, i don't think that's going to work

, mitt romney on your left, president obama on your right. the first question tonight, john, goes to barack obama. >> well, will they have a chance to mix it up and rebutt each other in a free-flowing way. >> organizers hope to have a flee-flowing discussion. this is the kind discussion we like to see because it allows the two candidates to discuss it amongst themselves. if there are questions about each other's plans, they can directly ask each other that. we have not seen that in this campaign and we'll see it tonight. >> you said the economy will likely be the big subject in the debate tonight. we have new polling to give a sense of what voters are saying about this right now. >> it is, john. no surprise, people are very downtrodden about the economy. let's look at the new cnn poll just released coming on the air. it shows that 73% of americans believe that there is poor economic conditions right now. only 27% believe it is good. john, you have to ask yourself, who is that 27% who thinks that the economy right now is doing well. >> and we have been talking about this all week, who
